The New Mastersounds
The New Mastersounds
The New Mastersounds are a four-piece band based in Leeds, England, whose modern take on vintage soul-jazz, funk and rock draws influences from Jimmies McGriff, Smith, and Hendrix, as well as their most closely-associated mentors, The Meters. Try to imagine Grant Green and Lou Donaldson having a fight in a Hammond Organ shop while James Brown holds the coats, and you have some idea of what to expect from this band.

Their first single, One Note Brown, was released on Blow It Hard Records in 2000 and was passionately championed by acclaimed Northern Soul and funk DJ Keb Darge. To date, the band has released four studio records: 102%, This Is What We Do, Be Yourself, Keb Darge Presents… as well as The New Mastersounds Re::Mixed, and Live At La Cova. Also of note: their single, “Your Love Is Mine” featuring Corinne Bailey Rae, was used in the 2007 Warner Brothers movie Feast of Love.

Having toured throughout Europe, Japan and the USA, the NMS have earned global recognition as a key band in the ‘New Funk’ scene. But purists beware: their unique blend of funk, rock, soul and dance music is hard to sum up and doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre.

Headed soon to a city near you, The New Mastersounds deliver gritty grooves and deep rhythms in clubs, theater venues and festivals alike. Their live shows will get you up dancing and hold you there intoxicated by the funk until last call- when you’ll stagger home, sweaty and exhausted, on a wave of euphoria.

Led by guitarist and producer Eddie Roberts, The New Mastersounds feature Joe Tatton on Hammond, Pete Shand on bass and Simon Allen on drums.
Toubab Krewe
Toubab Krewe
Some music cannot be found on a map or within iTunes categories. Some music is so original it seems snatched from the great, invisible substrata that runs below all human activity, a sound aching to be born without a flag or fixed allegiance – free, questing, overflowing with immediate, tangible life. This is the music of Toubab Krewe, the vibrant Asheville, NC-based instrumental powerhouse that creates a sonic Pangaea that lustily swirls together rock, African traditions, jam sensibilities, international folk strains and more. While nearly impossible to put into any box, it takes only a few moments to realize in a very palpable way that one is face-to-face with a true original who recognizes no borders in a march towards a muscular, original, globally switched-on sound.

Formed in 2005, Toubab Krewe has tenaciously honed their craft through relentless touring and a fierce dedication to carving out something they can truly call their own. The fruits of this hard work can be heard on their latest release, TK2, (September 7, 2010 on Nat Geo Music). What Justin Perkins (Kora, Kamelngoni, guitar, percussion), Vic Stafford (drums, congas), Drew Heller (guitar, piano, fiddle), David Pransky (bass, guitar), and Luke Quaranta (Djembe, percussion) have wrought on TK2 reflects the many miles and musical journeys that have transpired since their studio debut.

This is a band that actively draws inspiration from whatever source floats into their purview, something they’ve exhibited in their half decade of heavy gigging, including regular appearances at major U.S. festivals like Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Rothbury and Wakarusa, and abroad at such legendary gatherings as Festival In The Desert in Mali. Their globe-hopping propensity has made them an emerging headliner at their hometown’s famous Orange Peel and a familiar face as similar venues throughout the country. Whether on their own or collaborating with luminaries like the Last Poets’ Umar Bin Hassan or Uncle Earl’s Rayna Gellert, Toubab Krewe has already earned the attention and respect of a broad musical community.

Toubab carries echoes of African greats like Ali Farka Toure, Orchestra Baobab and Salif Keita, no doubt picked up during the group’s travels to study and live in Guinea, Ivory Coast and Mali. But what truly differentiates Toubab Krewe from other Statesiders inspired by African music is how they innovate on what they’ve learned instead of simply recreating tradition. Toubab Krewe carves out a new trail honoring the African originators they admire by making something alive and contemporary.
Poor Man's Whiskey
Poor Man's Whiskey
The Bay Area's outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of folk, punk, rock, and disco to stages and festivals world wide. This "High-Octane Hootenanny" will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man's Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans.

PMW has released 5 studio albums, "Goodbye California", released in 2011, "Dark Side of the Moonshine" (a double disk set featuring original music as well as the bluegrass interpretation of the Pink Floyd classic album) in 2009, "Roadside Attraction"(2005), and "Train to California" (2003), "Hunnerd Proof"(2002).

Notable festivals and shows: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Byron Bay Blues and Roots Music Festival (Australia), High Sierra Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival, The Fillmore, SF; Harmony Festival; Strawberry Music Festival; The Great American Music Hall; Dead on the Creek, 4 Peaks Music Festival, The Summer Melt Down, Las Tortugas; finals of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
Euforquestra
Euforquestra
Originally from Iowa City, IA, Eufórquestra (pronounced: yoo • FOHR • keh • struh, think Euphoria+Orchestra) relocated to Fort Collins, CO in August 2008 and has made a splash on the Colorado music scene with its progressive, genre-crossing funk fusions and a relentless tour schedule. Eufórquestra is quickly spreading its High Intensity Global Dance Music, a unique, rhythmic blend of sound, integrating such genres as Afrobeat, Reggae, Afro-Cuban, Samba, Soca, Funk, Salsa, and Dub. Eufórquestra’s music is igniting dance floors across the country, with a sound that “explodes, dances and melts in your ear with sheer bliss” (Chris M. Slawecki; AllAboutJazz.com). As the band puts it, "we just want to make people dance.”

In October 2009, the band released their third studio album, Soup, a collection of 11 tracks that captures the band at new heights in terms of songwriting, energy and production. In an effort to spread the album far and wide as an independent artist, the band decided to give the album away for free online at www.euforquestra.com. With nearly 10,000 downloads since the album’s release, the word is spreading!

With three full length albums, a new live album and a relentless tour schedule (over 100 shows per year), Eufórquestra has created a presence on the national scene, performing all over the U.S. at clubs, concert halls, community events, and festivals, such as Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Electric Forest, 80/35 (Des Moines, IA), Sweet Pea Festival (Bozeman, MT), NedFest (Nederland, CO), Camp Barefoot (Bartow, WV) and Iowa City Jazz Festival. In addition, Eufórquestra hosts their own festival, Camp Euforia, every year in July, just outside of Iowa City, in Lone Tree, IA.
Eric Krasno
Eric Krasno
Founding member and guitarist of beloved bands Soulive and Lettuce, Eric Krasno is taking his fifteen plus year career in a new direction with his first solo record, Reminisce (Royal Family Records).

Recorded in Brooklyn, NY and at Soulive drummer Alan Evan’s PlayOnBrother studios in Western Massachusetts, the album features longtime collaborators Adam Deitch (drums) and Nigel Hall (bass, keys and vocals), as well as Royal Family artists Neal Evans, Ryan Zoidis and Alan Evans.

Since forming Soulive in 1999, Krasno, organist Neal Evans, and drummer Alan Evans have toured the globe spanning small rock clubs to major festivals, in Africa, Japan, Russia, Brazil, and more. With releases on Velour Recordings, Blue Note, Stax and their own Royal Family Records, and a resume that includes opening spots for the Rolling Stones and Dave Matthews Band, it’s little wonder the group has developed a reputation as one of the most celebrated instrumental soul-funk trios in the world.

Known throughout jazz, funk, and hip-hop circles, Krasno has the opportunity to work with jazz icons Joshua Redman, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Chaka Khan as well as hip-hop visionaries 50-Cent, GZA and Talib Kweli. Now in his eleventh year performing with Soulive, the studio and record label owner, and sought after producer (Ledisi, Matisyahu, 50-Cent), has distilled years of musical experience and influence into a reverent homage to the greats: “Reminisce is a collection of tunes I recorded over the last few years,” says Krasno. “I called it Reminisce because I felt like the record represented many different eras and styles of music and guitar playing that influenced me growing up. From covers like “Manic Depression” to originals like “76”, the record is a nod to those greats that came before me while adding our flavor to the music”

Krasno will take the music of Reminisce on the road with his new band, Chapter 2, featuring Krasno on guitar and vocals, Nigel Hall on vocals and keys, Adam Deitch on drums, and Louis Cato on bass and vocals. With guest appearances from luminaries such as Derek Trucks, Questlove, Warren Haynes and George Porter Jr. of the Meters, Chapter 2 is a band to be seen and heard.

KRAZ steps into the mixtape game to present "The Funky President" where he mixes and remixes everything from James Brown (title track) and rare soul cuts to Jay Z and The Black Keys while throwing in exclusive original tracks from Fyre Dept and Lettuce to create an ultra funky soundtrack.
